A gymnastics coach is behind bars at Placer County Jail accused of getting an underage girl drunk and then raping her.

Rocklin police said 21-year-old Daniel Smursel raped a 17-year-old girl after he gave her so much alcohol she passed out.

Extreme Gymnastics owner William Woltz said that he trusted Smursel completely and is astounded by the events. 'It does not sound like Daniel. He has been a loyal coach here for a long time. None of the kids here have been approached by him,' says Woltz. 

According to police Extreme Gymnastics has no involvement in Smursel's allegations.

Rocklin PD asks anyone with information about the incident or other victims to call police.
